The Meindl family have been making high quality walking boots for over 300 years and the name Meindl is now a name that walkers, hikers and mountaineers associate with quality, performance and comfort. Today Meindl footwear is still a family ran business that is now in its 11th generation and is now run by brothers Lucas and Lars Meindl. Meindl walking boots are always handmade in their factory in Kirchanschöring in Germany using high quality leather. Tradition and innovation are very important to the Meindl family with their walking boots leading the way for walkers and hikers for many years. Meindl also made one of the world’s first Gore-Tex walking boots over 25 years ago.
